Types of Wounds

Vivamel products are intended for healing both acute and chronic wounds.

Typical Cronic Wounds

Chronic wounds

  • diabetic foot ulcers
  • pressire ulcers
  • lower leg ulcers
  • purulent wounds etc.

Diabetic foot ulcers

Approximately 15% of diabetics suffer from diabetic foot ulcerations. About 50% of patients with diabetic foot ulcer experience limb amputation due to unsuccessful treatment of ulceration.

Diabetic foot ulcer is caused by several factors: poor blood circulation, foot deformation, and repeated irritation (mechanic injuries), which patients do not feel due to neuropathy. Poor blood circulation, a symptom of diabetes, hinders and slows down the healing process of the diabetic foot ulcer.

Pressure ulcers

Pressure ulcers are also called bedsores or decubitus ulcer and they are caused by prolonged pressure on the skin. The sited of ulcers are usually areas of the body where the bone is just below the skin: head, shoulders, shoulder blades, elbows, hips, spine, knees, and heels.

People most affected by pressure ulcers are the ones with limited ability to move who spend most of their time lying down, semi-reclined, or seated.

Lower leg ulcers

Venous lower leg ulcers are among most common chronic wounds. Number one cause of lower leg ulcers is chronic venous insufficiency, which is usually caused by an unhealthy way of life. In patients with a disease referred to as varicose veins, the blood begins to pool in the veins, therefore venous valves begin to deteriorate and the condition becomes worse.

Purulent wound etc.

Purulent wounds are heavily populated with bacteria. The most common bacteria in the wound are E. faecalis, S. aureus, E. coli, and P. aeruginosa.

Typical acute wounds are:

  • scratches,
